56 - How to Organize365 in 30 minutes with Lisa Woodruff

Mentors and Moguls Podcast

In today’s episode, Lisa Woodruff joins the show. Lisa is the Founder and CEO of Organized 365, which assists busy people in organizing their homes and papers with functional organizing systems that work. She is a productivity and home organizing expert. She motivates and teaches busy women to take back their lives with functional systems that will work for them. This conversation is packed with tricks, hacks, strategies, and proven systems on how we can organize our life and stop sabotaging ourselves from being a mess. Lisa’s aptitude for organization was evident as a child.  She loved to organize her mother’s art supplies.  Lisa knew that her love for organization was unique, but she had no idea that organizing was a skill that could be learned. She assumed you either had it or didn't. Lisa launched the blog Organized 365 because she thought it would be beneficial for search engine optimization (SEO), but she had no idea how to make money from it. She began writing about organization on her blog and 3 months later, Lisa became an in-home professional organizer who was paid to help individuals get organized. For 3 years, she has dabbled in home organizing and blogging. In her first three years of business, Lisa had to get over a lot of limiting beliefs. One of them was that she was more valuable than her $15 rate to organize homes. So she changed her rate to $40. Then, for her second year, she charged $50 and added some people to the team. Five years later, when Lisa quit organizing, she was charging $75 an hour and she wasn't even organizing the home, she was just making the arrangements. It was a big deal for Lisa to realize that, as a woman, she could make more money and steer clear of the mindset that she needed to keep her business small.  Lisa shares three tips for organizing. First, do a time study on how long it takes to do the housework – cleaning your house, doing the laundry, preparing meals, maintaining your vehicle, organizing your finances, or paying your bills. All these things take a significant amount of time. Second, start organizing by looking around at what you have and reorganizing it or putting it where you need it in the house. You can also buy specific organizers to help you. Lastly, you can either choose to be a maximalist or a minimalist; it makes no difference. It’s not the amount of stuff you have, it's the right amount of stuff for you.

Burnout, work/life balance, and supporting teachers (with Lisa Woodruff of Organize 365)

Angela Watson's Truth for Teachers

I recently had an upbeat, fun conversation with Lisa Woodruff of Organize 365 for her podcast, and thought I'd share an excerpt of it here with you! We're talking all about the state of education today, what we're hearing from teachers about their needs, and our experiences with burnout and balance. As a fellow former educator, Lisa knows the mindset and challenges of teaching well, and does a deep dive with me into some of the 40 Hour Teacher Workweek principles. This includes: the difference between required work vs hobby work, overcoming perfectionism, and learning what you can say no to without having your classroom fall apart.   We both share some major timewasting mindsets we fell prey to as teachers, and how we think about our work and time differently today. If you enjoy this conversation, check out ep 149, called Living life as an organized teacher.

Get organized, gain time, and build the life (and INFLUENCE) YOU WANT! Lisa Woodruff, Organize 365 (Episode 176)

She Said / She Said

Get organized, gain time, and build the life (and INFLUENCE) YOU want!  EPISODE 176 Studies show that “getting organized” sits in the top three new year’s resolutions right behind “losing weight” and “getting in shape.” Notwithstanding our collective commitment, it’s a difficult thing for many of us to conquer, and the mess and clutter is robbing us of our most finite resource: TIME. It also drains our energy, our focus, and our ability to execute on the things that are most important to us. Not to mention, it stands in the way of our ability to build and sustain INFLUENCE.  This week’s guest has great advice and perspective to help you tidy up, regain time, and build the energy and focus needed to conquer all the rest of your resolutions!  THIS WEEK’S GUEST: Lisa Woodruff is the founder and CEO of Organize 365. She’s the author of four books — including her most recent “The Paper Solution.” She’s also the host of “Organize365 Podcast” that’s been downloaded more than 14 million times! That huge number speaks to the millions out there who struggle to make sense of their stuff, and all the emotional baggage that often comes with it when we try to sort, discard, file and recycle.  KEY TOPICS: MINDSET: Lisa and I talk about the importance of mindset, and how it impacts our ability to get our clutter under control. Since mindset is often a big part of our conversation on She Said/She Said Podcast, I know you’ll love this additional dimension.  INVESTMENT IN YOU: Organization is an investment in yourself. Even small investments and limited progress help you gain more time.  SELF-TALK: Lisa talks about the importance of tackling overwhelming projects by adopting a positive talk track in your head, and she shares a few mantras that can help you shift your personal narrative. When we are too hard on ourselves it makes the job imminently more difficult, and we’re more likely to give up before we finish, or just skip the job all together.  OUR ORGANIZATION SYSTEMS HAVE TO EVOLVE ALONG WITH US: This was such an epiphany for me. As we evolve, change and grow, our organizational systems have to keep pace. That’s especially true as new people enter or leave our lives. Nothing in life is static, including our stuff and our paper. It all has to evolve with us on this incredible journey.  BUILDING AND SUSTAINING INFLUENCE: Getting more control of our space and gaining more time can help us build more INFLUENCE in our lives. The time we gain can be used to accomplish all those amazing things we dream about, and it can give us the bandwidth to connect more fully and to be more present for those we love and care about.  LISA’S FAVORITE MANTRA: “Progress over perfection!” Let me know what you thought of the episode!

95 - How She Hit 7 Figures By Breaking ALL the Rules w/ Lisa Woodruff

She Sells Radio

Welcome back to She Sells Radio with your host, Elyse Archer. This week, Elyse is sitting down with Lisa Woodruff, productivity specialist, home organization expert, and founder and CEO of Organize 365®. Lisa provides physical and motivational resources teaching busy women to take back control of their lives with functional systems that work. Today, Lisa is sharing with us how she built a million-dollar business in a way that felt right to her, and how we can apply that mindset to our work.  At the end of 2011, Lisa quit her job and decided it was time for her to land in her ‘forever career’ as an entrepreneur. She’s a 4th generation female college graduate and 4th generation female business owner, so it’s in her blood. She knew she had be hiding behind ‘traditional’ positions, and even though she was going in not knowing what she would sell, she knew she would scale online. However, she noticed that people in her space were making money from ads, which she couldn’t as she didn’t have the traffic to her blog. From there, she started her podcast, which now has hit over 10 million downloads. She realized over the course of this time that she is a teacher at heart. She runs everything like she is an educator, and in order to provide transformation, she had to impart actionable knowledge--which manifested, in this case, as a partnership with an online community, course, and physical product. That way, her pricing is up to her and she can quantify the value she is bringing on her own scale.  Lisa understands that she could take all the good things she’s learned and knows the impact her course, community, and product can bring. Because of that, she can cater the value she brings to women, as she understands that more often than not, women have a unique goal in their heart that they either can’t find the time to pursue or are made to feel bad when they do take action. Lisa is there to solve that. With her organization process, she can facilitate that growth.  Lisa’s business revolves around an organizational $97 “Sunday Basket.” There are 3 things you need to organize your home. The first is to eliminate your to-do list and kitchen counter paper pile. You can get 5 extra hours of your day by doing just that. Once you realize your brain is not a to-do list maker, and you can delay your decision-making to one day a week (Sunday) you find free time throughout your day. Then, throughout the 100-day course, Lisa offers, you go through your house and get it organized. For most people, it takes 3 rounds or 1 calendar year. If you remember that 5 hours you got back, that is now transformed into 12 hours a week that you didn’t use to have.  Lisa’s journey to success in sales is full of key decisions. The first thing she learned is that she didn’t want to do is set up a recurring payment model. Lisa found that the women she’s working with already have a lot on their plate that they’re trying to organize--adding a monthly payment to that only adds to the stress. A flat rate is simple, one time, and out of mind. Her pricing is high enough to deter non-interested buyers but low enough to be doable if you’re invested for life.  Number two: the value she is bringing is probably worth more than what Lisa is charging, but she avoids the “and you get THIS added on!” marketing tactic. When she started her business, she decided the price and charged it, even though she knows the true value. In not giving a discount, she solidifies her model without question. By doing this, she never needs to run sales nor teach her potential clients that you never charge full price. It’s worth having folks put off a purchase if they come when they’re 100% ready to invest in the growth they’re getting. Lisa doesn’t pressure people into buying! It’s so effective, Lisa’s only had 2 refunds--ever.  Lisa’s background in direct sales has provided her with a lot of perspective and insight into running her business now. She learned 4 things every business does:  Pink--leads & marketing  Purple--the product & VIP customers  Blue--team & personal development Green--P&L & admin tasks She figured out that many people are REALLY good at one of these aspects, but because you may not have time to improve the other sections, your business doesn’t grow. This is a holistic approach, you need all parts of the puzzle. These are completely different skillsets, so it’s important to allocate time and energy to each color.  For Lisa and many other women, the guilt of the to-do list comes with being a woman either in a household or not. It’s not wife & mother to carve out a day to impart a system to a business. There is a mental block for some generations of women that disallow for that to happen. Once you realize you’re not a professional duster, the mental shifts towards passions. What business owner is going to listen to your podcast and worry about you cleaning baby bottles? It’s about the impact you can have on society without detriment to other aspects of your life. Breaking through that six-figure mark for Lisa was all about those pink and purple parts of your business’s foundation. Find your weakness and reframe your perspective. Focus on sales & marketing and the leads will take care of themselves. Share and share authentically on a platform that you’re comfortable on and where your audience is. In addition, sell your physical time. It’s that simple. From there, sell your team’s time, your business’s time, whatever. Have that space.
